Antonio (pictured here) refers to his chemo treatments as his "crime-fighting juice."
From the moment you meet Antonio, you realize he has already developed a larger-than-life personality. For his family, it's a treat to have such a wonderful boy -- especially for all he's been through.
Antonio is undergoing treatment for acute lymphocytic leukemia, coupled with a rare and complex chronic fungal infection.
Antonio is a true fighter. Anytime his family is having a hard time accepting his illness, they look at their playful, energetic four-year-old and their mood instantly changes.
In Canada, about 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. Cancer continues to be the most common cause of disease-related death in Canadian children. This is an unacceptable statistic, and we need to do everything we can to change it.
Take the pledge today to do what you can to help. Pledge to fight cancer (and crime!) for kids like Antonio who are fighting every day.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
